Harold watched this Silver-washed Fritillary and a Peacock happily nectaring together on the same Buddleia flower spike on 12/07/18 in his Sandford garden.Given the number of flowers spikes on this plant it seems amazing that they chose the same one.

Harold tells us that to date he has recorded eighteen species of butterflies in his garden this year, a very impressive total!
